Alfred Anger Library
Prof. Dr. Alfred Anger (1926-2012) was a pioneer of advanced eighteenth-century studies, and honorary member of the Martin-Luther University as well as the IZEA. He conducted, among other themes, extensive research on the so-called Rococo literature and Anacreontic, and on sensualist and playful forms of literature, which already emerged in the early and middle phase of the Enlightenment alongside the rationalist and reformist movements. Since the 1960s, he held the chair of German literature at the City College of New York. He generously bequeathed his extensive library, with a particular focus on the Enlightenment, to the MLU.
The Alfred-Anger Library is held at the IZEA as a special collection not open to the public, and can be consulted by appointment. A research through the collection is possible thanks to the contents description established by A. Anger.
